It'll be under my ass, nobody'll be able to see it unless they look REAL close...

And those people will go blind or insane from the endless expanse of spandex.

This may be 205 to some of you (it was in the Wired Gadget blog), but wow, just wow. I know, I know, we've all seen millions of "trick" videos. I rarely make it halfway through them anymore. I've watched this one all the way through 3 times now.

The big stuff is hot, but there's some really magical subtle tricks in here too. Danny, you are my new hero.

WOW

My doG how does he do that ? It's beyond belief that people can do that sort of thing. The thing is though, the tricks he pulls in the vid were all succesful - just think of the spills he has pefecting them

well, note the beginning where he blows that fence hop-n-roll several times.

i've watched a guy on one of those 26" stunter bikes practicing a rail-hop where he was riding out on a railroad track rail, coming to a full stop, balancing, then 'hopping' to the other rail(!) doing a 180. he must have tried it 100 times and only pulled it off completely smoothly once or twice.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome.

What could taking a shower do to possibly remove any banned substance from his system? I know the rules are that he had to remain in view of the tester, but c'mon. This guy had been tested at all hours, and surprise tested many times. The end result has been ZERO positive results. The 7 tours in a row are a huge boil on the Frenchies ass, and they will try anything to get rid of it (Him). I hope he rides and places well, and raises money for the LA foundation. I love the movie quote by Michael Caine that goes " There are two thing's I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other peoples cultures. And the French!!!
